First quarter both teams struggling a bit but Boston has decided to play physical and collapse on Sabonis in the paint.

Went OT. Not that Boston is great this year but it feels like you can see the corner from here.

Took a little bit, but he started making the right passes and seeing the exits. Just couldn't hit enough shots off those passes. Late, we started collapsing offensively if the first or second screen didn't create enough, we devolved into iso-ball late in possessions, which didn't work.

Another close loss in a funky game for both teams. Boston 39% Indiana 38% from 2.
3 point percentage bad for both teams. Referees seemed to let them play on both sides with fewer fouls called.
Rookie guards struggled with their shots thus Craig, Lamb, Lance, Holiday in more minutes. Craig had really good game and Lamb was decent. Turner not bad just not involved a lot so less minutes tonight. Tough defense on Sabonis all game limited his scoring but he excelled in assists and rebounds. Really happy they hung in all game as Celtics have a decent team.

Rick should have called a timeout and draw a play before Stephenson missed go ahead jumper.
Dont you think he is part of our late game worries ?

We need to look for someone that can score in ISO. We would have ten more wins with a capable clutch iso scorer (like oladipo was ).

that's LeVert and Warren and maybe also Lance. frankly though, I'm not a fan of iso ball.

The lack of ISO ball is what I've been enjoying.

Congrats to Duarte! He missed this game for the birth of his 2nd child.
